and in michigan rick snyder, new republican governor passed sweeping reforms that will affect every kid in the school system in detroit. this is something to me that the millennials get implicitly and i think we need to start really looking at mountaintops when we have the next opportunity which will be in the next presidential election cycle. the other issue that ranks highly is the environment. i argue in my book we need to make a strong case for conservative environmentalism. the republican party has a pretty good history of environmentalism. teddy roosevelt, richard nixon, we can talk about climate change and acknowledge that climate change is happening but is also an inexact science. we know the cover of newsweek in 1975 showed that the globe was going to freeze over. we can acknowledge and talk about it in a reasonable way without embracing the left's solutions which would be -- levee enormous tax burdens for energy consumption. and frankly only reduce carbon emissions in the united states by a minimal amount without touching in the end china. so i think the deal with conservative

'connor upheld an affirmative action program for the university of michigan as said it was appropriate to take race into account. if you do it any way that is personal that isa quota and do other stuff so no court can figure out what your doing. it is so if you may get -- so it is individualized, so nobody has a smoking gun that race was the actual fact, then you can do it. people in universities, shockingly, are able to do these things. i don't think as long as that is the rule, the supreme court will be interested in coming back to that issue so soon. what makes the case more interesting is in the interim, while affirmative action had been thrown out by the fifth circuit in the 1990's, the texas legislature, i think at the behest of the elite republican who i am sure is very close to everybody here, passed a statute that said in order to increase the amount of minority students in texas public education, there was going to be a guaranteed 10% for the top 10 at each high school, would be entitled to go into one of the university's in the system. the question that is somewhat more interesting

[laughing] there seems to be such a huge disconnect, you know, between what you see on tv and even what you read about. most of the tv shows like "law & order" you have a judge who's eminently fair, a prosecutor who is completely ethical, a defense attorney who doesn't show up half the time. these images really result -- i know this as a public defender, because the portrayals of public defenders are usually negative. why? i ask this to the entire panel. why is there such a disconnect between the reality of what really happens in our court and the way that many americans are force fed, really, this mythology? tony? >> i think in a corrupt so
